Buhari Will Play Key Role In Selection Of APC Presidential Candidate – Zulum

The Governor of Borno, Babagana Zulum, has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari will play a key role in determining who emerges as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Zulum who received the former minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to the state, said APC delegates in the state are waiting for the directive of Buhari on who should emerge as the candidate of the party.

According to Zulum, the ruling party needs a candidate that would enable the APC to retain power in 2023.

The Borno State Governor said, “Borno state delegates will vote based on their conscience. But again, our leader, General Muhammadu Buhari, is very important in this political equation.

“We are still waiting for him to tell us what to do and we will follow. His advice is very important so we have to wait for his advice.

“Nigerians should pray for a good candidate to emerge, irrespective of tribe, region or ethnic background but a candidate that will ensure the APC forms the central government come 2023.”

Amaechi on his part promised to end insecurity in the NorthEast and across Nigeria if he emerges president.

The presidential hopeful said, “When I was governor of Rivers State, Buratai was a brigade commander while Abba Suleiman was the police commissioner.

“We ensured we engaged the teeming and idle youths by giving them jobs that kept them from the streets.”
